If we’re making the case for portability, we can’t overlook the fact that, like the rest of the VAL6 models, the Daystar can be run from a power inverter out of your vehicle. It can burn kerosene, #1 and #2 diesel, and bio-diesel (up to 20%), and do so cleanly right across the board. The pinpoint design means a 100% recovery of heat from the fuel you put in, meaning you stop throwing money away. The Daystar is both a radiant and convection style heater, making the best of both styles. It has an easy-carry top handle, and a 2.6 gallon fuel tank. Given that it takes in a scant 0.4 gal/hr, this baby can go and go for 6.5 hours without stopping.

The Daystar is used best in situations when you need quality heat — fast. Unlike typical industrial space heaters, there’s no smell, burning eyes, headaches, nausea, or carbon monoxide to worry about.
